Bathing suit season is soon upon us. Let us pray. Clearly I was born too late. If I were born in Roman times, I would be a goddess. I would have been revered; maybe even a legend (and not just in my own mind). Instead, I am considered by many to be a little fluffier […]
Witty Woman Writing
Tammy Bleck is Witty Woman Writing
Jeff Davidson - Very entertaining. A little reminder of Erma Bombeck!
tp - Oh my gosh!! How did you know what I have to go through getting a swim suit. At the same time, realizing that you’re never going to be perfect and accepting that concept is refreshing. The younger people in my life are not ashamed of how I look, why should I be. Cellulite must be “in”.
Shirlene - Boy, Tammy, you got that right for sure! I laughed hard reading….My black slimming swim suits are ready to put on in a few weeks. Can hardly wait myself! I look at it this way….If you don’t like it then don’t look! Look out summer, here I come!
www.goodhealthdiva.blogspot.com - This is so funny!!! I was just thinking about bathing suits as I am preparing my vacation to South Carolina! I have taken the stress out of shopping for bathing suits a couple of years ago! First I bought many at the end of the summer as they are cheaper and then I purchased a bunch that work well for me! So like this, no more thinking about shopping for some any time soon! I don’t like shopping for clothes anyway so I always purchase many colors of the same thing when it fits great! I swim often at my gym so it forces me to be aware of my ‘appearance’ before hitting the beach during the summer, but I still wish I looked like Halle Berry in a bathing suit!
Jennifer Eubanks - Now this….THIS is why I live in the mountains. No beaches. No worries of swimsuits. Except for the indoor pool filled with little teenagers who look like they came off the cover of Vogue. And yes, a one piece + having to pee= disaster!
tammy - Hi Jeff, Thanks mucho! I loved Erma Bombeck and consider that to be one of the nicest things anyone has ever said about my writing. Happy you are here!
tammy - TP, There are many things us women have in common. Fear of facing ourselves naked is up there on the list! You’re right …. have no shame, let your beauty shine! Thanks for your post.
tammy - Hi Shirleen, LOVE your attitude. I once lived in a condo that could easily be viewed by other units. I loved having my shades up and thought a lot like you do; if they didn’t want to see a 55 year old woman in her skivvies, they shouldn’t be looking. Have a great summer in your black slimming suits. Thanks for being here.
tammy - Hi Healthdiva, I’m not entirely sure that even Halle Berre looks like Halle Berre, although I’d take it! You are such a clever shopper. I bet your Xmas shopping is done by September. If I ever find a suit that compliments me and is comfortable, I’m buying ten of them! Unlikely…but a girl can dream. Thanks for the post!
tammy - Jennifer, it IS a blessing living away from the beach, although I would miss it if I didn’t have it near me. But I see the advantage. Kudo’s to you for holding your own among all the young whip-er-snappers in their cute little suits. And, yes, we all have learned to either “hold it” or do it before you swim. Duh?! So very happy to have you on the other side of my posts.
Rach (DonutsMama) - This is great! Thanks for the laugh. I so dread swimsuit season. Just as I got comfortable in a 2 piece, I went and got pregnant and had a baby! Oh well, I love the beach and the pool so that’s not gonna stop me!
Carmen - Just love all your articles so insightful with reality attached to them. My saving grace is I neither sun myself or know how to swim. That being said, at least with clothes I can hide bulges better!!! I totally agree with Jeff, Erma Bombeck lives on!!!
tammy - Thanks Carmen! I love being called ‘insightful’. Been called a lot worse! I agree with you….I spend my time staying out of the sun; big hats, long sleeves. Far cry from the girl who grew up on Santa Monica pier. Oh, Erma…..did you hear that? What a privilage to be lumped in with such company. I hope I do her justice. Thanks for being here.
tammy - Hi Rach, us moms know that we usually compromise drop dead body for simply gorgeous baby. It’s God’s sense of humor and it all works out in the end. Absolutely not….you go to that beach and you take that beautiful baby with you. Don’t forget the sun hats and sunscreen. Thanks for your post.
kriti - Tammy – sometimes I really wonder if you are for real – this was so much that I really need to put some ice on my cheeks. It hurts from all the smiling : ))
Cynthia - Well, you’ve done it once again…laughed so hard my face hurt…It’s all so true…I still have a one piece black suit that is threadbare, the elastic is worn out and cracked at the straps…yet I still put it on.
tammy - Cynthia….we are sister’s from different mothers! So happy I was able to put a smile on your face. Thanks so much for being here!
tammy - Hi Kriti, If I were any more real it would be scary. So happy to have you following. Thanks for the post!
SIS - Yep, a bit like Erma ! So many laughs, and incredible visuals !…hehe ! Keep up the good work….you are the best at what you do !
tammy - Hi SIS, yikes….the visuals are scary! Thanks for being here…so glad you are.
